I feel like it’s been forever since I have done a Rocksbox Reveal! I know that I skipped the month of February altogether because I must have gotten like 50 emails from Mandy at Rocksbox wanting to know if I wanted to refresh my set yet.
Mandy don’t play, people!
I did eventually return my last set and in about 1 week, a new box appeared at my doorstep. If there is one thing I have to say about Rocksbox is that the minute your box is dropped off at the post office, they are already working on your next set. They don’t waste time and I really appreciate that.
I did receive an email a few days before my new set was sent asking if I wanted to switch any of the pieces my stylist picked, but I opted not to. I like to be surprised and sneaking a peek into my set and switching something, kind of takes the fun out of a subscription service, in my opinion. So I scrolled by Mandy’s email and put my trust in my stylist to pick something that I like.
If you caught my first Rockbox Reveal post, you would know that I really dig the natural stone look and am a total sucker for turquoise, slate and anything earthy looking and once again, my stylist took note of that, but this box was a little mixed for me.
When I opened my box, it looked like my stylist paid attention to my previous notes and purchases and tried to mimic them. However, as I dug into the box a little more, I have to admit that my enthusiasm dwindled a bit. The Ava Rose Tyler Pendent in Gold and Turquoise was the first item I opened and my initial thought was that the rectangular pendant was really bulky looking and heavy. However, it ended up being my favorite piece for those very reasons. You see, I’m not a petite girl. I’m 5’11 and “Curvy”, so small things have a tendency get lost on me, but this piece nicely straddled my love for delicate jewelry with my healthy body frame. I’ve worn it a couple of times and I really like it with a simple white t-shirt and jeans or a collared blouse and work trousers. I think this one is a contender!
The next item, I thought I was going love, but ended up hating it. I love ear jackets. I like how they hug the curve of your ear and add a little fun to an otherwise simple stud, but the Sophie Harper Starburst Ear Jacket didn’t look like ear jackets to me at all. First off, they looked more like Palm Trees than Starbursts and that was an immediate turn off. Secondly, the part that is supposed to hug the ear looked like a simple dangly earing, except there was no fluidity or movement to it, so it was just very stiff looking. Totally skipping this piece.
The last item, I knew before I even tried it on that I wouldn’t be purchasing it. I’m not much of a bracelet kind of girl. I prefer a watch on my wrist and not much else and even then I find myself taking the watch off halfway through the workday and putting it in my purse. So when I saw that my stylist added the Slate Amina Stacking Cuffs to my box, I was a bit perplexed. I don’t even have any bracelets on my Wishlist, so you would think that would be a big clue into my dislike for wrist ornaments. Not saying the actual cuffs are ugly, they are really pretty, but just not for me. Also, they are tiny! I think they were made for children or at the least very petite women with delicate, birdlike wrists.
As usual, I left feedback on all my pieces and, immediately got an email from Rocksbox about the sizing issue with the cuffs asking me if I wanted to exchange them for a different size or style. Although, this box was not as spectacular as past ones, you can’t beat the customer service. I feel like they are really invested in their product and in their customers and want to make sure you have a pleasant experience. That in itself is a real treat.
